I will be in house overclocking Intel’s latest and greatest processors using Liquid Nitrogen. Some of you may know me around here, some may not. I have been ranked in the top 10 in the world on HWBot.org (http://hwbot.org), and currently fighting to keep the top Canadian overclocker spot on the Bot. I will be overclocking the latest Intel 2600K & 980X flagship processors, ASUS Maximus IV Extreme & Rampage III Extreme motherboards, an ASUS GTX580, and Corsair Dominator GTX2 memory.

There is a little bit of geek in all of us, and what is more geeky than overclocking a computer with liquid nitrogen? I will be happily answering any and all questions related to overclocking while benchmarking some of the latest hardware on the market; as well, everyone will get a chance to pour some LN2.

There will be snacks, drinks, contests, Beer Infuser demonstrations, and a host of other things to do and see. Prizes and swag have been arranged from Canada’s premier hardware review and news site Hardware Canucks.com (http://www.hardwarecanucks.com) including a Gigabyte P55A-UD6, a Corsair Vengeance 8GB kit (sponsored by Corsair), and an ASUS HD 5770 CuCore. So come out, learn a little bit about the world of extreme overclocking, have some fun, and take home some great prizes!

Yeah, it would be a bit of a drive from TO with the 401 getting snowed out seemingly once a week. We should be having more things like this at the UnLab going forward. I like the idea of a big benching party with a bunch of guys running rigs some day.

like i said, i wish this was a big enough event to warrant a trip out here with a prize package. it would be great to see you again Brian.

the M4E is here and testing has begun:

to avoid potential issues with going to cold using phase, i managed to duct tape a loop together of stuff sitting around in boxes. yes, that is an Asetek waterblock with a diaper. the hold down fits 1155 holes almost perfectly...not sure what the hold down was for originally.

here is the first decent 32M from the setup:

i need to get the Hypers working on the next higher ratio, although, i could insulate the DIMMs and run the memory at 6-6-5 at these clocks going sub-zero with the GTX2s. plenty of options.

i have now transitioned over to a single stage with evap temps around -35C.

i haven't seen any gains in clocks, but i feel more comfortable going over 1.55v and i no longer have to keep my window open to keep the water temps cold :)

here is also a quick 05 from last night:

it really looks like this chip is just going to max out around 5550 or less. it isn't responding to more vCORE or cold temps immediately. i am messing with multi's right now. the good news is that it doesn't seem to be adversely affected by cold in either clocks, or BCLK. running 32M at 108.1 right now.
